Oris 733 7712 4085 description

Oris introduced the Thelonious Monk Limited Edition in anticipation of BaselWorld 2015. It is a new model in the brand's tradition of honoring famous jazz musicians. It features a deep blue sunburst dial with an unusual 11 markers between 10 and 12 - a tribute to Monk's dissonant technique. The caseback is engraved with 'MONK ALWAYS KNOW', referring to one of Monk’s many memorable quips inspired by the letters on his custom-made ring. To audiences, the ring appeared to say ‘KNOW’, but when approached, he would explain it read ‘MONK’.
